Commuter chaos as conductors strike
HUNDREDS of rail services will be cancelled today as staff launch a fresh strike in an increasingly bitter row over conductors.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union at Southern Railway will stage a 24-hour walkout which will cause travel chaos.
The company warned there will be no service on some routes and a limited number of trains on others, describing the disruption as “totally unnecessary”.
Southern said it expects to run two thirds of its 2,100 services, but warned there will be a “significant” impact.
Several routes will have no service, with only a limited number of trains between 7.30am and 6pm on others.
The two sides blamed each other for the dispute.
